    You have powerboost like us comcasters, it speeds things up for a bit and you sustain teh rates you pay for in your package.
    So actually if I was uploading to my FTP server for any length of time, it wouldn't be any big deal?

    I'd kill for even a meg up. Five up would have me grinning like an eight year old who just caught a five lb rainbow, everyday he went fishing...
    The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, and prejudices to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its own for the children and the children yet unborn and the pity of it is that these things cannot be confined to the Twilight Zone.

    If you were on a plan with powerboost or whatever Cox calls it, you would get teh boosted upload speed for the first 2-5 megs, then down to whatever the rate is.

    Now generally ISPs like to keep heavy uploaders on business plans, but if you stay under the bandwidth cap of your ISP then you should be fine.

    Not really, if it was 1 rate for TV subscribers and 1 for non subscribers I could see it that way, but you get a discount for bundling TV and net and another for phone tv and net.
